Obesity in 3D, Brought to You by WIRED

I love me the Infoporn, and by that I mean any old charts, graphs bookkeeping ledgers or maps I may find laying around, as well as the monthly feature in WIRED magazine of the same said title. I'm convinced if I just follow another issue, another year's worth of these cryptically insightful charts, graphs, and Venn diagrams, I will have the key...to something.

This month's visual plots the standard grocery store on the x, y, and z axis, highlighting certain product placements as the Ground Zero of the Obesity Epidemic (or page 44 in the print version). It's pretty rad, making all pretty what we know already: Empty calories are cheap. But is your grocery store organized like the one in these charts? Organized...to fatten? And am I the only one who tilts at charticles?
